    About the book

    What would you do if you had one perfect chance to be yourself? Trapped on the Oregon coast with his unhappy, just-divorced father, 12-year-old Jeremy isn’t expecting much from his summer vacation. But everything changes when the boy of his dreams runs by, and Jeremy discovers it takes more than dreaming to reach out and say what’s in his heart. 

    Perfect for kids in grades 5-9.
